Sea Shepherd what about the sharks?

Sea Shepherd, what about the sharks?

Sharks are being put to slow deaths at an alarming rate for their fins in Mexican and Chinese waters according to The New York Times.  Where is Sea Shepherd in these waters to protect the oceans top predator?    
 
Part of Sea Shepherd’s mission statement reads:

“Our mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world's oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.”

Perhaps they should include in the mission statement: 

“This mission statement excludes sharks in Mexican and Chinese fishing waters.”

I find it hard to believe that 90% of the world's shark population has "disappeared" as claimed in the article you linked to. And, of course, the author gave no source to back up his claim so, I guess we are just supposed to take his word for it!
